From notable styles and a stunning stage presence, M-Cellz’s music is standing out as an entity all on its own. The quality of art, music, and dedication put forth by the artist has definitely made a mark and impact on the music community.
The Norwalk, Connecticut-born and current Atlanta resident, is the owner and CEO of his independent label and brand Grind Trybe Entertainment. M-Cellz is solely driven to expand his brand and build more of a fan base for himself and his company, all while delivering nothing but good quality music to the world.
Honing in on his authentic emcee delivery, the unalloyed and present performance from M-Cellz shines brightly in, “The Business.” Recruiting Hip-hop artist S.L.I.M in order to achieve the desired sound that tours us through the verses, we are offered up hard-hitting energy that thrives on the dynamism that both artists bring forth.
The buoyant instrumentation courtesy of OrionCreates and Gerard sits heavily on your mind as you’re persuaded to get up out of your seat and fuel your soul with the charismatic likes of the music at hand. “The Business,” allows you to feast on the lyrical complexity that both M-Cellz and S.L.I.M bring to the table as they flaunt their undeniable swagger through slick cadences and perfectly timed rhyme schemes.
Conveying a motivational message that touches on the struggle they’ve been through to get where they’re going, your eyes are opened to the confidence oozing from this track. Conquering an inimitable panache that effortlessly flows through your headspace, M-Cellz weighs in superlatively as he destroys this beat with an unapologetic persona.
Delivering us a minimalistic approach to the oversaturated bells and whistles blazing, keep your mind open to the seamless pieces of M-Cellz’ universe slowly coming together in a raw and gritty fashion.
Congratulations on the release of “The Business.” How did the collaborations between yourself and S.L.I.M come to be? What was it like working with one another?
Me and S.L.I.M have been friends for years, that's my bro, we make great songs together. Our chemistry on the track is untouchable. Working with one another is always fun, he's from New Orleans and I'm from Connecticut so the blend of our two different styles is always complimentary.
What themes and messages are you hoping that your listeners pick up from “The Business”?
That you're always going to have haters, and no matter how much you progress in life and change for the better some people just don't want to acknowledge the positive change you've made, but that's THEIR perception and that has nothing to do with you. Always keep grinding!
Could you please take us into what the creative process looked like when bringing this song to life?
I really wanted to put my brand out there, especially my merch. I'm about giving a message to the people, I like substance. I wanted to show that not every hustle out there has to be all about selling drugs or something negative, and no matter what business endeavor "We", people of the black culture pursue, people are always going to see us in a stereotypical light and that's what I wanted to depict. This visual is a continuation of my other single/ video called "Can't Take" which shows 2 officers stalking me in hopes to catch me doing dirt, only to find out I've been selling my merch all along.
What is your favorite lyric that you lay down in “The Business”? Why?
My favorite line is probably when I say "Ain't study none, but I passed those tests. It's the school of hard knocks, life knows best"...Because it's so true. Life's like a test that we don't get a chance to study for, there are so many unexpected twists and turns. Hence the saying Life/experience is your best teacher
What's next for you?
Anything and everything I put my mind to, The sky's the limit! Definitely the expansion of my Grind Trybe brand and so much more. Grind Trybe is more than just the music, it's about getting money with Your tribe (Close Family/ friends) and it's about the Culture. Music is my core passion but I'm trying to definitely take this beyond just music, I just wanna help make a powerful and positive impact in society, While expressing my creativity to the world.
